The Safe School Helpline
We are pleased to announce that Carrollwood Day School has contracted with The Safe School Helpline to provide a 24-7 anonymous helpline that can receive reports by phone, text, online, and through an app.
The Safe School Helpline is not for issues that are emergencies or immediate in nature.
If there is an emergency, please call 911 (9-911 from a campus phone) then contact the CDS Security Office.
The safety of our school is everyone's responsibility and we all have the power to look out for each other. We know that in addition to faculty and staff, our students and parents are the eyes and ears of our school. So, if you hear something or see something that threatens the safety of our school or a student or other member of our school community, you should not be reluctant to report it to proper authorities. We continue to encourage students and parents to reach out to teachers, counselors, and administrators to ensure the safety of our school and the well-being of students; however, The Safe School Helpline will now provide a way for students and parents to report this information anonymously.
Students, parents, and staff can use The Safe School Helpline to let us know about and try to prevent problems before they happen. You can contact The Safe School Helpline any time of the day or night to report concerns about unsafe or potentially disruptive activities or situations including drug or alcohol abuse, weapons, harassment, bullying or threats. All calls are completely confidential.
The Safe School Helpline also includes a Community Counseling and Crisis Center that provides a 24-hour crisis intervention service. Trained counselors are available 365 days per year to talk with persons seeking assistance in coping with suicidal thoughts, depression, or feelings of loneliness and loss.
